tempore: pursuant to the rule, the gentleman from new york, mr. king, and the gentleman from mississippi, mr. thompson, each will control 20 minutes. the chair recognizes the gentleman from new york. mr. king: madam speaker, i ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days to revise and extend their remarks and include any extraneous material on the bill under consideration. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. king: madam speaker, i yield myself such time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. king: madam speaker, i rise in support of s. 3542, the no hassle flying act of 2012. at the outset let me commend the gentleman from illinois, congressman walsh, for introducing this measure. it passed the house in september by voice vote. madam speaker, this bill gives t.s.a. the discretion to determine if checked luggage arriving from a foreign airport with an aviation security preclearance agreement must be rescreened before it continues on to a connecting flight inside the u.s. the bill explicitly defines such an agreement
written article, but i can assure at least from my point of view mr. king expresses some concerns about the environmental review and its speed. and i can say that expedient and complete and thorough are not mutually exclusive, and you can do something and certainly i would expect the same analysis to be every bit as thorough. and this would be the case with any e-i-r, but that does not preclude it from moving in an expedient manner if it can be so done. and the other very interesting article by john wildermuth, very excellent journal on the housing wars, key to city's diversity, that's the title of it. he does talk a little bit the years of protest. it's well written, but a little self-laudatory in that we have a lot of problems, still a city which once had a huge middle class and had lots of families with children and had some of the highest sale prices of anyplace. we have to differentiate. i think these things he mentioned have done a lot of good things, stopping free ways from chopping up the city, shopping another western addition destruction as happened in the '60s, but there also

centers that serve 35,000 small businesses each year. all of your experience, mr. king, will most certainly be called on it tested for the job ahead of you. mr. kevin law is one of the most respected business organizations in new york. the long island economy is made up of over 100,000 businesses, 90% complete 20 people or less. bit with look forward to hearing directly from you about what your business is their same come, many struggling to recover and how we can be as helpful as possible. mayor, let us start with you and again, hearts go out to the people that you've lost and are devastated, but were going to stay with you for the long haul, long road ahead. [inaudible] >> make sure your buttons are pressed and you speak directly into the mic. >> good morning, chairwoman landrieu and committee members. it's an honor to be here today. i am the mayor of hoboken, new jersey. hoboken is located across the river from new york city for baseball and franks are not shed in the home of cake costs. with more than 50,000 residents and hundreds of businesses call her square mile city their
with some of them. i think that mr. king asked a good question, application, and you have been selling food over here for almost ten years and why not? and what caused this problem? and it is the best question. because we are not letting people get away with this. >> okay. >> all right. >> i just want to make sure that we were able to communicate where we are coming from and the fact that it is not something new that we are doing, we have been doing it for almost ten years at this location. and unfortunately, by getting our or enforcing some of these issues, we are making some enemies and not a lot of friends by some of the old clients. >> i have a couple of questions for you, have you seen the police conditions? >> we have not. >> the police say that they want you closed by 3:00 a.m.. those are the police conditions. and i have a couple of questions, first of all i want to say that ignorance of the law is no excuse. and you have been in business nine years at that location and for nine years you have needed an extended hours permit. also, you can't blame your employees for not acting right
of why they're a great place to join. >> bob king, thank you, sir, mr. president, for joining us tonight. a lot of viewers are well younger because they don't remember the fights after world war ii and all that fight about right to work and whether states should have a right to pass these laws. make your case quite simply. why should a worker be forced to join a union? >> well, let's start out with the facts. no worker in america is forced to join a union. the national labor re-elections act say that any worker -- our uaw constitution says any worker who does not want to be a member, does not have to be. they still work. the question here really is do citizens in a community pay their fair share of the police, the fire, the snow removal, any of the services they get from that community? yes, they do. i want to ask governor snyder, is he -- >> no, no. bob, let me ask you the question. i know you had fun with me on that one. in other words, you have to pay the equivalent of the dues even if you're not a member of the union, right? you're forced to do it in order to work. >> you don't have
? >> just one. mr. king, if you can hear me, i was wondering if there's anything that the unions can actually do to deprive some of the nonpaying members from the rights you're able to put together. is there anything you can do as an incentive or leverage to get people to pay if this measure goes through? >> again, the vast majority of our members in right to work states now, a huge majority, do pay their dues. they want to be part of the union. it's just that this is an attack because we herped elect president obama, because we stand up for working people. >> but the question, mr. king -- >> we're not going to allow that to happen. >> are there any measures you can actually take against those that decide to opt out of paying of being a part of your union, that perhaps they won't receive some of the benefits of -- >> you know, honestly, honestly, i'm not interested in excising leverage. we do a great job. we think the great job we do, members will continue to -- the vast majority, 98, 99% will continue to pay their union dues. but we have to understand this. this is part of a nationa
to come to michigan. >> let me go back to mr. king. >> this is about growing jobs. yes. >> you have had a great -- let me just tell you what i know, how good you are because it was a clean union from the beginning. it's a very liberal union with big picture ideas. isn't just interested in wages and work rules. interested in the welfare of middle class people. you have a great union there. is this right to work thing really going to hurt your union and kill the esprit de corps of the union workers? why would this hurt them? >> i don't think it will in the uaw. we have great membership loyalty. the problem is it's just the first step. we have watched in this state right wing legislatures pass laws to take away the collective bargaining rights from public sector employees on health care and pensions. they did a petty vindictive law that took away the right to dues deductions for teachers. that's why we're fighting here today, we want to stop this before they try it take away the rights of private sector workers to bargain over wages or pensions or health care. this is about democracy and a
luther king jr., the home county of mrs. ralph abernathy, the home county of mrs. andrew young. and because of what happened to him, we made a decision to march. in selma, alabama, in 1965, only 2.1 percent of blacks of voting age were registered to vote. the only place you could attempt to register was to go down to the courthouse. you had to pass a so-called literacy test. and they would tell people over and over again that they didn't or couldn't pass the literacy test. on one occasion, a man was asked to count the number of bubbles on a bar of soap. on another occasion, a man was asked to count the number of jellybeans in a jar. there were african-american lawyers, doctors, teachers, housewives, college professors flunking this so-called literacy test. and we had to change that, so we sought to march. and we got to the top of the bridge. we saw a sea of blue-alabama state troopers-and we continued to walk. we came within hearing distance of the state troopers. and a man identified himself and said, "i'm major john cloud of the alabama state troopers. this is an unlawful mar
